Fig. 2

Total populations on vulnerable land. a Current population on land below projected mean higher high water level in 2100 assuming intermediate carbon emissions (RCP 4.5) and relatively stable Antarctic ice sheets (sea level model K14). Estimates based on CoastalDEM. b Factor by which CoastalDEM increases estimates of people on vulnerable land over SRTM in each country under K14/RCP 4.5. Countries wholly north of 60 degrees N are excluded because CoastalDEM is undefined at those latitudes. Source data are provided as a Source Data file. National boundaries based on public domain vector map data by Natural Earth (naturalearthdata.com)
